Morning chaps

Went out last night to find that my left side light has gone pop :?
So i thort it would be a good time now, to get some realy good bright replascents ones.
Sounds like LEDs are the way forward :)
Has any one got any photos of these befor/after shots and cant any one recomend a LED make i should look at. There are a few on Ebay i have found

Looks like a UK ferm. Probably the best one but a little £££

Actually, a lot of people complained about those type in the early days. Something about the heat getting to the unshielded LEDs.

These are the ones I got.

Higher power and UltraLeds claim the complete metal enclosure eliminates any heat probelms. Certainly had no problem with mine. A lot of other people on the forum have these also.

Hi ppl!

Just purchased a set of the above LED side lights from ACE:

http://www.aceparts.com/upgrade-bulbs/5 ... elight.htm

However, when I have gone to fit them they look totally wrong and I dont think they will fit? Should I have got some H6w ones like this (http://www.aceparts.com/all-led-bulbs/l ... -bulbs.htm) rather than the 501 type?

It does say the 501 type fits 99.9% of cars but they didn't look like they would fit in the holder for the side light on my TT.

These are the ones Ace sent me.

They fit fine and look really good here are some pics from a dyno day





My lights are pure white :)

Nice one looks really good! Maybe I just need to try again..... Its just the ones in it at the mo have a nipple type fitting and these 501's are wedge shaped at the bottom? My TT is a 2002 180q none xenon if that makes any difference?

Thanks for your help!

Forgive my ignorance here, i've just fitted LED sidelights to my TT and they look really good on their own when the sidelights are turned on and the ignition is off. When the ignition is on the other sidelights come on and spoil the effect. Can i simply take the other bulbs out or are there LED lights available for these too?
The LED lights i have fitted are just below the main beam headlight - its the other smaller light id like to stop coming on when i'm using the sidelights :oops:
